Résumé / Abstract

This article reviews evidence for considering job satisfaction at the group level of analysis. Group-level job satisfaction is functionally independent ofindividual-leveljob satisfaction. This construct is labeled group task satisfaction and is defined as the group's shared attitude toward its task and the associated work environment. The authors propose that group task satisfaction develops out of within-group homogeneity in individual job satisfaction, which in turn is a product of the shared work conditions, social influence processes, attraction-selection-attrition effects, and emotional contagion effects associated with work groups. They predict that through group interaction, the within-group homogeneity in job satisfaction will come to be perceived as a characteristic of the group. Once identified as a group characteristic, group task satisfaction will be subject to processes such as polarization and prototyping, with the result that group task satisfaction should function independently of the mean level of job satisfaction within the group. The authors predict that group task satisfaction will be related to the mean level of individual job satisfaction within the group, the quality of the group 's processes, and the performance of the group, thus serving as an important indicator of team viability.
